barack obama would be may have like bill clinton. once he lost big in the first off election year, 2010, he would come to the center. he didn't do that. and so now you see our house conference. i was just there yesterday. they are more focused than ever to engage in this fight, whether it's going to be during the debt limit debate that will come in two months or we have a c. o. debate, which the government is only funded through the end of march this year. so to fund the government for the rest of the year we will have another opportunity for a spending fight. but you have people that are now ready to engage in a way like never before to make sure we reform spendingave the country. >> we mentioned one of the things you did sponsor was a piece of legislation that says you will freeze the pay for members of congress. a lot of people would say bravo. if you don't reduce the deficit, maybe there ought to be a reduction in pay. everyone knew in washington you had this deadline and nobody seemed to get serious about it until about midnight on put 1st of december. >> simpson-bowles made a reco

a balance sheet analysis of things. it will change. i was campaigning for president obama in seattle and was with an amazing supportive housing organization there that showed, they had 23 homeless people, they looked at their medical expenses for the year before they came into the supportive housing and the year after. 23 people they saved their local hospital a million dollars in medical expenses because we all know, it's far more expensive for -- to leave somebody, especially if they have a mental health issue, for more expensive to leave them on the street than to come in and empower this -- the study talked about medical expenses but didn't do this. i went to visit the residents. i met one man who now is volunteering, now was teaching people about cooking, and making contributions. so, we have a backward way of thinking about this. this is why i think over criminal justice system in america is the most -- if you're a republican, that should be your biggest cause to go after because it's big wasteful government. it doesn't need to be that way. if we were empowering people to succe

's not surprising to me. what you have to see is how well the white house defends this pick. right now this is a pick that doesn't have a lot of friends on either side of the party. ultimately democrats are going to listen to what barack obama says about his own cabinet. another thing important to mention here is like matt was saying a bit is, take the john brennan pick. the john kerry pick. obama's trying to surround himself with people he really is friends with and likes. the first term was people like hillary clinton, jim jones, bob gates. they're big names. those aren't necessarily obama allies. brennan, hagel, kerry, susan rice, these are really people obama knows and is close to. that's what he's trying to build for his second term. >> i want to bring in congressman adam schiff, democrat from california. always good to see you, congressman, good morning. >> thank you. good morning. >> do you think if this fight if it does materialize over chuck hagel could have the effect of taking the focus off of other things that need to get done? things like the debt ceiling? >> well, i don't

obama has been letting the house -- [inaudible] like we did with the fiscal cliff negotiations and that is why the republicans are having to use the only bargaining chip that they have which aids the debt ceiling. maybe there is more compromise between the democrats and mitch mcconnell talking about a one-term president and all that kind of stuff, getting back to work together we wouldn't see republicans trying to take these drastic measures. >> host: thanks for the call from california. >> guest: i have great affection for my friend jim manley and i know he has great affection for harry reid but i think harry reid has been a disastrous leader. what is going on procedurally is not, they do not allow for real debate on big issues. the fact that they have not passed a budget in three years in the senate is one of the most irresponsible acts. we need edges more than ever now. we need to know where the spending is going in many to have a debate on the senate floor about these things and we just haven't had a discussion. the senate majority leader is doing his best to shield his mem
